Range Rover
The Range Rover has indeed stood the test of time. Known as the quintesssential luxury automobile, the Range Rover has been voted the Car of the Decade!

Based on a poll conducted by Autocar.co.uk, about 18% (1350) out of 750o voters chose the Range Rover as their choice, beating out other makes such as the Lotus Elise comfortably.

 

Autocar associate Editor Hilton Holloway rightly put it, “The Range Rover defined a new type of luxury; technically sophisticated, beautifully detailed, modern and yet retrospective. It was an overwhelming presence, but in a way that the majority could admire.”
The first U.S. specification Range Rover went on sale in the United States on March 16. 1987. Since it’s initial launch the Range Rover continues to remain the favortite for luxury car lovers.

Autocar Editor Chas Hallet says, “The Range Rover is a fine choiice for Car of the Decade. Most polls like this have results skewed towards the latter end of the timescale, but not this one. That the Range Rover was launched nine years ago yet remains a benchmark speaks volumes fo the brilliance of it’s design- and for the tatse of the people who voted for it.”
